Detroit thought it had secured a come-from-behind, walk-off win over the Pirates, but a four-minute review overturned Nicholas Castellanos' 10th-inning run. Gardenhire — angry at how long the replay took and his opinion that definitive video evidence was lacking — was ejected for vehemently arguing the call, and Pittsburgh went on to win in 13 innings.

MLB acknowledged that the replay process erred in both in terms of timing and evidence, Gardenhire told reporters Monday.

Major League Baseball told the Tigers that mistakes were made when Detroit's walk-off victory over the Pirates on Friday was overturned after a replay review , manager Ron Gardenhire said Monday. MLB , however, says it stands by the call.

"We heard what we wanted to hear," Gardenhire said (via MLive.com). "I will tell you that. They told us what we knew was right. There you have it."

Tigers general manager Al Avila got the message from MLB's New York offices, Gardenhire said.

"The explanation was they didn't really have conclusive evidence that somebody tagged him," Gardenhire said. "Yes, he might have got him. 'We think he got him' is not good enough. In this situation, it has to be definitive. It has to be, "Yeah, I see him (tag) him.' It's not, 'Well, he looked like he touched his sleeve.' That can't happen. It's got to be conclusive. Obviously it didn't happen. There were mistakes made. That's fine. It won't bring anything back."

Gardenhire told reporters that MLB said the Tigers' on-field celebration was to blame, at least in part, for the time needed for the replay review, almost double the two-minute limit allowed with certain exceptions.
